Toy Fair New York 2020 – Day 1

At the Modarri Booth

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00418

I am working with the Modarri brand to showcase their toy cars at Toy Fair. Opinions are my own.

Today I took a very early train down to New York City for the first toy fair for me in 3 or 4 years. I honestly cannot remember the last time I was able to attend the show. I did Dad 2.0 twice and Disney Social Media Moms Celebration once and I think I just couldn’t swing anything last year so it must be four years. Wow. Well, 6 years ago I attended and got to check out the Modarri line of toys in advance of receiving them from their Kickstarter campaign. I was an active backer and backed each subsequent campaign in the years since. I’ve also been fortunate to do some reviews with the cars in that time. The latest one was of their Modarri Car Configurator, an online car creation program that you can use to have a real Modarri car shipped to you. Now I am back at Toy Fair New York and for the next couple of days I’m going to be showcasing the Modarri line of cars and now Monster Trucks. I’ll be showing you the vehicles, interviewing the team and doing some fun stuff while at their booth. So, stay tuned for much more content about Modarri.

Win a Family 4-Pack of Tickets to Granite State Comicon 2019

Granite State Comicon

I am very excited to say that my family will be hosted guests at Granite State Comicon 2019. I have not been to this event since the very first one way back when it started in 2003. The Granite State Comicon was created by two friends of mine from college, brothers Chris and Scott Proulx and their friend Brett Parker. The con has grown and I have wanted to go back for several years now. It just hasn’t worked out. But this year I was asked if I wanted to attend and to help promote the show. I’d certainly do anything to help out these guys. Part of that is running this giveaway and coordinating with other bloggers to put on giveaways of their own.

This year is a big year for TMNT fans. It is the 35th anniversary and there will be a bunch of very special things happening at the con for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles including voice talent from the shows and many artists and even Kevin Eastman! I am thrilled about that!

Both of the kids are going to cosplay at the show. They have each created their own unique characters and on one of the days Eva will go as Luna Lovegood. I cannot wait to see how they do at the show, it is going to be so much fun. If you would like to join us on Sunday please enter to win passes through the Rafflecopter app below.
